ELLE (France): JAMES DEAN – Robert Pattinson : TWO IDOLS , TWO EDEN ~ translation


One, James, is the emblem of the teens of the 50s, who has 24 years and who looks ten years older in his man’s suit. It was in 1955: in five months, he died. We know everything about this picture, the friendship which united the photographer (Dennis Stock), location (New York), fatigue of James that day. James might be immortalized by his friend, which is captured is a total solitude which foreshadows almost eternity. Nothing is known then the life of the actor. His homosexuality is carefully hidden. And James Dean, who would speak, was forbidden to discuss it. It would end his career. And perhaps his legend.

The other, Robert, is so famous he could not in any walk incognito in Times Square. It finished this time. Here, tracked by paparazzi, also has 24 years and almost the same face as James Dean. He too must be discreet about his sexual life, even if only to conceal the fact that he has a girlfriend, not to discourage her fans. He is also the idol of ill-being of teen-agers. But he, despite the isolation that gives it its amazing reputation, linked to other works, his mobile phone to the ear. Instead of giving the impression of stepping into the legend, it gives that little to cling to what remains real. Between these two pictures, a certain pathos left celebs. But also a certain lyricism that made them incomparable …

In many articles Rob is often compared to James Dean, Elvis or Paul Newman because of the face, the charming and the talent. In my opinion Dean and Elvis were kinda "dark" guys, I mean their eyes were always sad, like sth weighed heavily on their minds. Drugs killed Elvis and Dean died on a car accident.
BUT I don;t think Rob is like them. He always looks happy, smiley and outgoing... I don't know... Ithink we shouln't talk about it, we will put a jinx on him. It's both honour and curse to be compared to this guys...

did you really belive that Rob is not dark like J.Dean? dear Ivy?
I think his eyes is always to sad and despite the efford to make jokes and laugh all the time,in every interview,
we all see that the laugh never touch his eyes and the sadness is always there.
My opinion ,always, is that the comparison with J.Dean is very big compliment for Robert.
of course I hope he will live much longer than Dean.
